Willamette Valley Pie Company lies just east of Salem, OR in the farming community that expands through Marion and Polk counties. The company is a working orchard and farm with a welcoming retail shop and a production facility in Silverton, OR.
We have been a fan of their pies for a while now, so we decided to take a day trip to visit their retail shop.
Willamette Valley Pie Shop (WVP Co.) is family owned and operated by the Gerald Roth family. As stated on their website, they began as a family farm and branched out into the bakery business when the local bakery that used WVP Co. produce in their pies decided to sell. 
Since purchasing the bakery, WVP Co. continues to grow. They moved production to a new facility in 2016 to accommodate that growth. 
A scenic drive into the countryside outside of Salem will take you to the retail shop.
If driving from downtown Portland, it will take approximately one hour to reach the retail shop, as long as there isn’t traffic buildup along the way. As you exit the I-5 freeway the drive meanders through Salem neighborhoods and eventually out into the lush fields of farmland where you might wonder if you took a wrong turn. Thankfully, WVP Co. has signs to help guide you to their shop.
The retail shop is located on the east side of 82nd Ave and is a low-lying, two-story tan building. White picket fence surrounds the entrance to the shop’s parking area.
The retail building front is reminiscent of an old-style general store with a modern twist with its rock accented posts and front porch.
Upon entering the store you will find yourself immersed in displays of kitchen gadgets, food products, and novelty items.
Walk towards the back and you will find the pastry and pie selections for the day along with hot and cold beverages available for purchase along with the sweets and treats.
There is an ample seating area with booths and tables where you can indulge in your purchased treats and relax while taking in the countryside scenery from the large front windows.
If you can’t decide on one pie slice, there is a freezer filled with frozen pies and fruit for purchase just waiting to be taken home.
We ended up purchasing pie, scones and muffins to try! When in doubt, get the pie!
Once you are done satisfying your sweet tooth, you can wander through the wares they have for sale throughout the store. You might just find a sauce, candle, or decoration you didn’t know you couldn’t live without!
Our trip to the retail shop was a perfect day trip. We had lunch before we arrived, so we were ready to dive into some pie! They had several flavors available for the day. They offer pie straight up or a la mode. The prices were very reasonable and the serving size was generous.
If we lived closer, we could see ourselves frequenting the retail shop often for dessert. For now we’ll have to add it to our places of “must go back” and satisfy our cravings with Willamette Valley Pies from the frozen foods section at our local market.
If you want to know more about the company’s background, and how they operate, they offer tours of their production facility for groups.
Before you go, text GOTPIE to 51660 and you’ll get a free slice of pie, a drink, or a pastry! (Of course, you will get future deals as well as they become available.)
